I had lots of fun at Alexander Wang’s frat-themed after party last night. It was all about glowsticks, astroturf, oversized beer bottles and cans. I even tried jello shots for the first time. They were so good I had three!
I recently went to the opening of “Muses”, Peter Jensen’s new exhibit at the Designmuseum Danmark in Copenhagen. Consider me a fan; I love his sense of quirkiness and cheekiness. His whimsical pieces always reflect an element of fun. Some of the highlights from his ten-year retrospective include a black cardigan with hologram badges (my favourite), a printed jacket depicting an image of racial diversity, dresses from his spring/summer 2005 collection inspired by ice-skater Tonya Harding and more.

My favourite online store Luisa Via Roma (www.luisaviaroma.com) recently hosted a sit-down dinner for the third edition of the blogger-oriented Firenze4Ever event. The dinner (for 100) was held at the eye-popping La Specola (aka Museum of Zoology and Natural History) in Florence. My seatmate was my friend Wendy Lam of Nitrolicious.com. Facehunter Yvan Rodic, Eva and Daniele Cavalli, who I’ve finally met at last, were also in attendance. We were served scrumptious Tuscan cooking and yes, opera singers serenaded us throughout our meal.

I loved watching the belly dancers at the Caftan 2011 fashion show the other day in Marrakesh. I couldn’t pinpoint what exactly I found enchanting — the performance itself or the dancers’ voluptuous, curvy bodies. There was something hypnotic about the way their bellies, their hips and their bums shook to the beats of the sound. I think it’s wonderful that there are still places in the world where “curvy” is considered as beautiful. I cannot imagine belly dancers without having actual bellies and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
You know you’re having a jolly good time when you’re in the same room, chatting, dancing and drinking with the world’s fashion and entertainment royalty at the Top of the Standard Hotel (formerly known as Boom Boom Room). The room was filled with one major star after another…. it felt like you have to be a star to be there!

Razzle dazzle! As I always say my dearest readers… when was the last time you did something for the first time?
Yesterday night was the annual Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Benefit. This year’s exhibition celebrates the legacy and the astonishing work of the late, great Alexander McQueen. It’s my first time to attend such event.
Thank you so much Ms. Wintour for personally giving me the privilege of witnessing such a magical, star-studded evening. I wouldn’t be there without your help.
I took around 2,000 photos last night. I’ll edit and post them as soon as I can.
I recently visited Harvard University for their annual Identities fashion show. Here’s the final walkthrough of the show. Quite charming to see students of one of the world’s most prestigious academic institutions put on an entertaining show. What a delight!
Yesterday evening, my friends from Elle Magazine invited me to join their table at the AAFA (American Apparel and Footwear Association) American Image Awards. I’m usually intimidated by black tie events simply because I don’t know what to wear but my beloved Dolce & Gabbana came to my rescue and I wore this AMAZING sparkly outfit from their fall/winter 2011 collection.
